Jaspurr, I agree with you about the white dots as ID feature for Newman.  After molting, who knows if the dots will be there.  And peachy Zooey, for sure.

One was perched on the nest box camera housing early this morning, and both on the feeding ledge about 6:30 AM.  Newman is the smaller of the two.  Zooey, like Peregrine adult females, is a hunk!

Newman, white dots.  I think I have this ID.  It was Ginger who posted the white dots ID.

Jaspurr, what's the date on the pic of Newman that you posted from Ginger?  We'll see if Newman retains the white feather dots on his head. 

Meanwhile, here's Zooey in all her peachy finery this morning.  Must go back to the rewind to get a pic of Newman today. . . . And here he is, see pic.

STL, I don't know what happened to it.  I went back through the posts and could not find it.

Shep, the southbound train had 5 engines, I believe.  Pulling a really long train, or over mountains?  The northbound was on a siding and standing still.  There's a protocol about which train gets the right of way, isn't there?  Thanks for the heads-up.

Great colors at sunrise, Zooey on the feeding ledge & nest box perch, Newman on a dead branch, light rain, typical August morning.

Rewind to about 2:00 this afternoon to watch a large barge coming downstream and through the locks.  Great closeups.

Thank you for the spectacular sunrise STL.

NORA, hope you had a wonderful birthday.

I never get tired of watching the Mississippi and the bluffs in the morning with my cup of coffee.  Takes me away from the chaotic world I live in. I may not be posting but you can be sure that I am watching.   ;D.
